Island Apollo Interview: Band Holds It Down With Latest Single

Good Morning Music Lovers! Would you like some great new music to fill your ears with? Of course you do, why else would you be here?!  Today I would like to introduce you to an up-and-coming Orange County band, Island Apollo. The band is made up of five members: Ryan Kilpatrick (Vocals & Guitar), Matty champagne (Drums),  Addam Farmer (Bassist), Heath Farmer (Guitarist), and Austin Farmer (keyboardist).  The band has released a new song, a follow-up to their 2015 self titled “Island Apollo” EP. At first listen, I absolutely loved “Hold It Down” and it just kept getting better with time. The mixture of the southern grunge guitar sound and crisp clear vocals gives them a sound all their own, can you dig it?!

I was lucky enough to interview the band and ask a handful of questions so we could get to know them a little better. Their answers even helped me digest their music a little differently knowing their background and musical influences. Check out the interview and their latest song “Hold It Down” below…
